    In the half of garage used for non automotive odds and ends. Old chair works fine as easy to use bike stand. No need to lock or worry about melting ice and snow, I'll get to cleaning up in the Spring.

    Bike commuters ARE one percent of the commuting population in the U.S. Is that what you meant?

    That's a good skill to have. I always drop connection when switching from blowing out to breathing in.

    Good answer, but I think he meant The One Percent. (We had an Occupy Boston encampment here and I think teddywookie posts from the People's Republic of Cambridge).

    I really like them. Very adjustable and stable. How much room they take up depends on the bike's bar width. If you're using them for long term storage and not daily usage,loosening the stem bolts and turning the bars really slims them down.

    I gave the poster credit for having more intelligence than to think that having a garage or a few bikes makes a person a financial kingpin or a member of The One Percent.

    Thanks! Think I'll start keeping an eye out for sales. Sounds like they have about the same foot(and handlebar)print as leaning the bike against the wall..

    Old picture.... I've actually sold three of the bikes in that picture, including the Lemond, but not to worry I've gotten new bikes to replace them, including the LHT.

    We have a large apt with 2 living rooms. The front living room is poorly lit, chilly in the winter and too warm in the summer. A perfect bike room/mud room. Most of the bikes (we have 7 each) live in there and can roll right out the front door. We also have a sunroom and sometimes a bike is kept in there on a trainer. There is a walk out basement too. That's where my bf has his bike shop (man cave) with a shop quality repair stand and all his tools. A storage room off the shop has the two mtn bikes stored in there.

    I used to keep my bikes in my room but I was growing tired of the related mess, I want to have a "quieter" room without all the visual noise. But I was living on the ground floor so I would just roll in. Now, I'm in a second floor walkup, in a larger apartment where the largest bedroom serves as storage room so I keep all my bikes in there with the exception of the commuter that sits half-way in the stairway.

    In the 50's (vintage of my house) it was popular to have a breezeway between the house and garage - ours is a bikeway now

    my spendy road bike goes in the living room.

    my folder goes folded-up in the front hall closet.

    my foul-weather commuter and my wife's hybrid go down in the bike room of our condo building.

    i'm not allowed to get any more bikes until we move to a bigger place.
    The first rule: if you're riding a bike and not having fun, then you're doing it wrong.

    I have hooks to hang bikes vertically along the wall in the garage. We live in a townhouse w/ a 2 car garage; my wife parks her car on one side of the garage, I park my bikes in the other side. My truck lives outside on the street.

    My building has a dedicated indoor storage room with racks. Great for when the weather is bad, I'd hate to track all that into my apartment.

    The two bikes that get ridden live next to the door in my apartment. I have a stand to hang them up, but it requires 2 people to assemble. My cat has refused to do his share of the labor.



    My C&V Schwinn lives in the spare bedroom. I'm planning on selling it this spring, and buying a mountain bike.
